An unknown local correspondent from Big Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 16, 1926:
Here we come with a bit of news from the big city of Big Creek.
This place is getting like New York every day. All the business men are buying new cars, getting ready for the good roads whether they are finished or not.
Mr. and Mrs. L.D. Franklin and family have recovered from a bad case of measles.
Charley Wheeler is confined to his home with measles.
Mr. Jim Toney and family will soon be coming home for the summer.
John Adams, the barber of this city, was seen out car riding in his new car Saturday.
Mrs. A.H. Austin of Logan was called to the bedside of her mother on account of illness.
Mrs. B.M. Wheeler is quite ill at her home here.
Uncle Bill Lucas of this place, who has been ill for some time, is able to be out again. We are sure glad to see him on the streets again.
Mrs. Ed Gill is improving nicely.
Guess there will be some gardens raised in the little city as I see plenty of good fences going up.
We certainly did need a good doctor at this place. We have one now, Dr. Rouse.
There is some talk of getting up a Sunday school in this place. We certainly do need something to wake the people up.
